Jakarta. Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati told reporters on Monday (18/12) she expects Indonesia's annual economic growth to be 5.3 percent in 2018.

That would be slightly lower than the 5.4 percent growth target in the approved 2018 state budget. For 2017, the government is targeting 5.2 percent growth.

Sri Mulyani also said the 2017 fiscal deficit is expected to measure 2.7 percent of gross domestic product.
